There’s no better time than now to be thinking about perfecting your hard boiled eggs!

I absolutely LOVE egg salad sandwiches, deviled eggs, and hard boiled eggs on my salads, but I don’t love those grayish rings they can get.  Ew!

So… here’s a little trick that has worked for me!

First, boil your eggs for about 15 minutes.  {do NOT cook too long!}

Hard Boiled Eggs

While eggs are bowling, fill a bowl with ice cubes and set aside.

Just before eggs are done, add some cold water to your bowl of ice.

After the eggs are done boiling, remove eggs from heat, carefully strain water, and immediately submerge your eggs in the ice bath…

    Do you put the eggs in the pot before the water is boiling or after? Might be a duh question but I don’t want to ruin them. Thanks!!

    I always boil my eggs exactly 15 min. not a hard boil but boil non the less for a full 15 min and submerge immediately into a cold bath just like Heidi says. And it works perfectly everytime. Thanks Heidi for sharing. It really does work, I’ve been doing it for 30 years.
